A mother freaked out at my daughter…wdyt?

My 17 year old daughter is a counsellor at a day camp. Her age group is 12 year old girls.

Two days ago, one of the girls came to my daughter while on a field trip and said she had her period, but didn't have any supplies. My daughter gave her a tampon, because that's all she had, but didn't think anything of it (it wasn't the girl's first time or anything).

Today, the girl's mother came in and was livid, yelling at my daughter for providing her daughter a tampon when she doesn't allow her to use them. My daughter stayed calm, and the camp directors were on her side, but she thought the mother was absolutely insane when she got home and was laughing about it, but I could tell she was upset.

What do you think?

I think if the mother is tat worried about what supplies here child uses, she should make sure her dd is always well stocked.

Goofy. Some parents are just mean. My dd is the same age and has the same type job.

I think if she is that concerned over tampons the teenage years are going to put her in a mental institution. LOL!!

What a peach.

I'd be thankful my daughter was save from embarrassment. If she didn't want her to have a tampon, she should have made sure her daughter always has a couple of pads with her.

I think your daughter is awesome! I'm sure the young girl appreciated it and her mother is in the wrong, she should have made sure she was prepared. Kudos to your daughter for staying calm.

I've seen that reaction before, and I must admit, it baffles me. What exactly is the objection to tampons? How could you deny your dd the convenience of a tampon? Menstruation is so inconvenient as it is, why wouldn't you want to make it easier if you could. I just don't get it.
